hey paula, it's been 5 yrs since i had a cycle but then it was diagnosed as migranes. I have only recently become an unwilling member of this group, week 4 since diagnosed a Ch sufferer, i thought i was alone with this, i'm sorry to say i'm glad i am not. I'm thinking the verapamil is starting to work 240mg 3 times/day, prednisone for two wks at a gradual ween from 80mg/day--10mg/day now.waiting for my injections to come.
i've tried imitrex spray, maxalt tabs&wafers,
nothing stops an attack even if i catch it early.
Something worth noting though i have a facet injury in my neck that i think started me up, the past 4-5 days i've been taking 25 mg of the antinflamatory vioxx since then it seems that the pain has lessened and become less frequent...for now. i'm sorry to hear the pain gets worse for you near the end of your cycle is that common
or . Well speak of the devil!! guess who's paying me a visit? I'm anxious to see what he'll be like today! gotta run! to be continued.....
